Keep Westword Free

A first look at Fear Before's new video

Just finished screening Fear Before's new video for "Fear Before Doesn't Listen to People Who Don't Like Them." If you haven't seen it yet, take a gander above. Directed by Bryan Schlam, the highly stylized clip recalls a number of similar boiler-plate alt rock performance videos from the early 'to mid 90s, with frontman David Marion and his soot-smeared colleagues serving as the focal point, thrashing about while inhabiting the shadows of a non-descript squat, engulfed in the beams of light pouring through slat-covered the windows. Although we've all seen videos like this before, the clip somehow manages to enhance the song -- which, like the other tunes on the act's latest self-titled effort, represent Fear Before's finest work to date, hands down -- rather than detracting from it.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
